The first Hometown Christmas Parade starts 10 a.m. Dec. 7 in downtown Glendale. Inspired by members of the community who long to celebrate the true reason for Christmas - the birth of Jesus Christ, the Hometown Christmas Parade invites individuals, churches and businesses across the Valley to represent their local communities by entering floats, marching bands, singing groups, cheer squads, or even dancing grannies, utilizing themes that encompass the true meaning of Christmas.
The parade is sponsored by APS, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, SRP, and the Phoenix Coyotes. Additional sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also available.
The parade route will begin at the Fire Station just south of 52nd and Glendale avenues. It will proceed west on Glendale through the Historic Downtown Glendale area to 58th Drive. At 58th Drive, the route will head south to the de-staging parking areas on 58th Drive between Glendale and Lamar Road.
